ORLANDO — An Orlando homeowner is suing an insurance company, alleging breach of contract.
Maria Molina filed a complaint Jan. 25 in the Orange County Circuit Court against Universal Property & Casualty Insurance Company, alleging failure cover damages caused by a hurricane.
According to the complaint, on Sept. 10, 2017, Molina's property at 12256 Holly Jane Court, Orlando, was damaged as a result of water loss due to winds from Hurricane Irma. The suit says Molina suffered covered damages to the building, contents, and loss of use of the property and possessions. However, Molina alleges, Universal Property breached the insurance contract by refusing to provide coverage for the loss.
The plaintiff alleges Universal Property & Casualty Insurance has refused to pay her claim, and has required Molina to retain the services of an attorney.
Molina seeks trial by jury, damages of more than $15,000, attorney fees, interest, court costs and all other relief the court deems just. She is represented by attorney Nathan Teplitsky of Moises, Teplitsky & Gross PLLC in Coral Gables.
